Forza Racing Championship Kicks Off

0

In this day and age, we are seeing more and more online competitions for the Sim Racing community to take part in. The latest sim to get involved is Forza Motorsport, with the Forza Racing Championship.

The Forza Racing Championship will put many racers head to head for different prizes, ranging from car packs, all the way up to Elite Controllers and Logitech wheels. The competition is split into the “Open Championship” and the “Elite Championship”.

The top 128 racers in the Elite Championship (which begins today, and will run for 3 days) will be pitted in 1-on-1 competitions, until you reach the top 16. The Top 16 competition will be broadcast on Twitch, with the top four competitors competing for a real life Ford Focus RS!

For the rest of us mere mortals, the Open Championship will have us racing for different cars packs in the game. All competitors that log a lap in the sim will get the 1971 Ford Falcon XY GTHO Phase III, with different liveries for each week of competition.

For more information about the Forza Racing Championship, check out the blog post Turn 10 put out. NOTE: To take part, you do need to sign up via the ESL Gaming website.
